I have a love-hate relationship with the Dubai skyline. Love, love, love the height. But the skyline is just average. It looks weird to me. It doesn't look dense and doesn't have the variety in building heights to make it jump out. Either way-7.5/10

Although theres been alot of good quality skyscrapers built in dubai there seems to be a huge amount of cheap 60's looking concrete turds, i think the skyline is decent and quite impressive but i find the city itself a souless place partly because there is nothing but tower block after tower block set out in this very unnatural looking way.


Skyline 9/10
City 2/10

In different angles it looks very different looking skyline, but it's the same.
